Hello gentlemen, the arc of instability is growing across the world, and now across the South Asia.

Through my channels of people doing infra projects in Sri Lanka, I hear of somebody in the govt trying to use the popular opposition to launch a move on Rajapaksa.

I cannot trust them, and need a confirmation from somebody else.

There in an economic crisis due to food and material costs going up along with lack of wages and jobs. There were protests and burning going on.

Sri Lankan government has declared emergency and curfew. India is providing emergency diesel supply to calm people.

I think that this government will not last if IMF deal is not secured. The question is, what can the anti American Srilankan government offer uncle Sam in return? :unsure:

Sri-Lanka's economic woes are self inflicted.

its not the lender's fault that the Sri-Lankan president used the money on Blackjack and cocaine...

I was going to say “Tera kya hoga kaaliya?” But then remembered the communal havoc in India
India has had a communal history since partition, but in normal life it never is an issue. In most cases everyone live their lives normally. If you think even at worse a thousand cases of communal violence in a country with almost 1.4 bn people will cause anything considerable then you’re wrong.
